Don't think this has been before but I am prepared to sink myself if so...

What rumours have we heard that we thought may happen etc?

The two classics I remember are, Ronaldo to come from Inter Milan on his way back from an injury and Javier Portillo from Real Madrird to join on loan.

Who else?

  • Was that not Javier Saviola?
  • Stanley Matthews
  • We were linked with the gorgeous Gabriel 'Batigol' Batistuta at one point. I'd have moved back to Charlton in that case ;-)
  • Nope, definately Portillo from what I remember.
  • Pires and Wiltord
  • Funny, not many defenders!
  • It was Portillo. I'm sure I saw a serious article in an old Voice of The Valley that said we'd had a close look at Oliver Bierhoff.
  • Continuing the arsenal theme, Marc Overmars
  • [cite]Posted By: nth london addick[/cite]Pires and Wiltord
    When was this?!

  • Wes Brown and Smmi Hypia were strongly linked under curbs
  • Van Nistelroy - he's a fan after all ;-)
  • [cite]Posted By: MrLargo[/cite]It was Portillo. I'm sure I saw a serious article in an old Voice of The Valley that said we'd had a close look at Oliver Bierhoff.

    That's actually true, because he scored a hattrick against us in the Anglo Italian. He was available, but I think we gave Kim Grant another contract instead ...
  • Luca Toni after the Steve Brown testimonial match, wasn't it?
  • Mathieu Flamini as well of course.
  • gerry taggart
  • Ages ago WSS

    when they were both on the verge of leaving Arsenal i picked up the news of the screws and in the confidential bit

    Charlton are looking to swoop for Pires and Wiltord laughed all the way to the boozer that afternoon
  • I think we were linked with Darren Purse once or twice.
  • Tim Cahill
    Teddy Sheringham
  • I remember hearing about Wiltord but not Pires

    I wanted to sign Wiltord so we could sing

    You're Sylvan
    You probably think this songs all about you

  • Those two Hibs players, Scott Brown and the other one. Think it was while Les Reed was in charge and someone from the board announced that we were interested.

    I think the story is.....he was offered to us after an anglo-italian cup game and we turned him down. I might be wrong but I'm sure AC said he wasn't what we were looking for.

    Others that spring to mind:

    Mathieu Flameni - when he left Marseille
    Pauletta - same time Costa was here, think he went to PSG instead
  • James beattie
  • alex, the left sided brazilian japanese bloke..
  • The Croatian or Serbian centre forward who went to Chelsea instead - Ketman or something like that ;-)

    Good thread, WSS...!
  • Kanu was a dead cert in the Sun before he joined WBA.

    Robert Green was linked MANY times but Charlton could never agree a fee of around 3m I think it was

    Steve Sidwell - missed out bigtime (he was the replacement for parker)

    who remembers Van Bommel - sky sports news even had a story on it??

  • Zheng Zhi?

    Anti Niemi

    Anthony Gardener LOL
